Thanks for posting pictures of your seedlings.

Unfortunatly this is very unlikely to be a glaciata. The darker
veining you see on the flower is a result of some anthocyanin in
veins. I posted a photo of a glaciata, Infanta, in same colour. Take a
look and you can see the difference. Glaciatas have an exceptionnally
smooth, even distribution of cartenoid pigment or are absolutly white
in absence of cartenoid pigment. Their colour is a very striking

Did you get some plicata seedlings from this cross? I wouldn't have
expected any based on pedigree, but strange things do happen.
